Tally ho, old cob. I suppose you re popping in for a pinch of the free games what what. There s a jolly briar of the stuff down there, I ll say that to your bright ear, old dagger. Tennis is the main event, no surprise there. But the help has been spouting all this other waffle too and I dare say there s something to be said about it. A cowboy game, a flying duel, a farcical romance. It s untenable just how frivolous our lives can get or that s what the help says frighteningly well-educated but don t ask me how or why. Well, I ll let you take a gander for yourself, old fox. Onwards and upwards etc. … [visit site to read more]

Sundays are for making Christmas-themed baked goods, but I haven’t decided what yet. Some sort of spiced cookie? That’s what I’m thinking, if I can get the ingredients I need from the local shop. Quick, here’s some not-Christmas themed articles about videogames to read while I think about what shapes to cut the cookies into.

Steven Messner at PC Gamer wrote about what it’s like to become a YouTube gaming celebrity at 80 years old. It’s not all good.

I’ve been avidly following the development of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard [official site], though I must say it’s not been without some trepidation. Resident Evil 6 did so much to destroy the image of Capcom’s venerable series I feared it may not be able to make a comeback.

Fortunately, the team behind Resident Evil 7: Biohazard seems to realize that the only way to go forward with the series is to go back. RE7 takes inspiration from the haunting atmosphere and foreboding loneliness of the original Resident Evil. … [visit site to read more]

Ubisoft’s “30 Days of Giveaways” is heating up on December 7 when Assassin’s Creed III [official site] will be free to any and all who want it. Assassin’s Creed III does tend to be fans’ least favorite entry in the series, but for the price who can complain? … [visit site to read more]

While Adam is busy hacking the planet for his final review, I ve dropped into the multiplayer of Watch Dogs 2 [official site] to harass some of the world s script kiddies. This is built into the singleplayer world seamlessly , you just select an option on your super-phone and a foe will become known to you a few hundred metres away (sometimes you ll be warped closer to them). Now you ve invaded their world, Dark Souls style, and have to hack them without being caught. It s the same great game of hide and seek from the first Watch Dogs and I’m enjoying it a lot. But there s also problems. Most significantly, why does this mode need guns? … [visit site to read more]

Guards come in all shapes and sizes, but their behaviours are quite robotic

We sent Edwin Evans-Thirwell into the field to see Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 [official site] and he came back to us with a report about the good, the bad and the ugly of the game, and thoughts on the loneliness of the long distance killer.>

Sniper rifles are ubiquitous in video games, but I’m not sure a game has ever captured what it means to be a sniper or to face one. These guns are characterised as delicate tools, the preserve of a methodical elite, but while sniping may require subtlety, a sniper rifle is essentially an instrument of terror.
